Pumpkins On Guard
Look at all the pumpkin faces
Lighting up so many places.
On the porch and in the yard,
Pumpkin faces standing guard.
Looking friendly, looking mean,
With a smile or with a scream.
Orange faces burning bright
In the cool October night.

My class this year is all excited about pumpkins. Our writer's workshop has been filled with stories of pumpkin patches and carvings. My students will love your poem. I don't think I will ever quite look at a pumpkin on a doorstep in quite the same way.
I so wish my carved pumpkins looked like this! Your poem reminds me of the one thing I do love about my least favorite holiday - all those glowing faces!
Short, sweet and to the rounded, orange point!
Thanks, Cathy, for hosting today. So glad to hear your class is excited about pumpkins! They may like my book OH MY, PUMPKIN PIE!, if you have it in your library. It's all about the different shapes and sizes and kinds of pumpkins. Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Pumpkin-Pie-Step-into-Reading/dp/0375829458
Thanks, Tricia, for your "glowing" comment!
Heidi, great "point!" Always enjoy reading your poems.
Great photo to go with your poem"
